Lesson plan example
This lesson plan template contains space for you to fill in:
- Reference to scheme of work
- Links to assessment objectives
- Learning objectives
- Targeted students
You can then plan out your lesson structure, inputting your starter and plenary, as well as notes about how you’ll know if all students have made progress.
There’s also space for you to include notes about:
- Literacy/numeracy links
- Key words
- Use of TA
These should be measurable. Consider the use of ‘must/should/could’ in your learning objective.
Identify your target students and how your planning meets their needs. This could include SEN, EAL or FSM, for example.
Consider the content – plan what you want students to learn. Next, think about how to divide up your lesson. You’ll need to set the pace and break down the lesson into tasks, including a starter/introduction and a plenary.
Also consider how you’ll adapt the lesson structure to meet the needs of your class. Jot down some metacognitive questions that you plan to ask.
Points to consider here include:
- How you will evidence that every student has made progress
- Can pupils apply the knowledge/skills they have learned to their work?
- The strategies you’ll put in place to show this
- How your differentiation meets the needs of students
